Paint it black

Earlier this year I made some self portraits featuring a white background and black paint, and since then I’ve had the idea stuck in my head of making a portrait like this. It’s always interesting to see how an idea in your head transforms when you try to turn it into reality. Victim of choice was Charlotte, who I’ve basically been shooting with since my early photography days (and her early modelling days). Of course Kathleen Van Walle, the only makeup artist who can read my mind, had to be there for the party as well. Another Sunday well spent!
